No plans for EU Nvidia retail cards

Written by Fuad Abazovic

At least not yet
Nvidia has shocked the world with its decision to directly compete with its partners. The company plans to launch Nvidia branded cards and sell them directly at Best Buy, but it looks like Europe is still free from such a move. According to Nvidia, at this time Nvidia doesn’t have any plans to launch Nvidia branded cards for European market.

European market is much more segmented and way more complicated than the US market. BestBuy is quite a logical partner as it has shops all around the country and Nvidia branded cards can fill the void since they lost two big names in the last year. BFG is out of the graphics market and Nvidia crossed XFX from its partner list.

It is all now in hands of EVGA, Nvidia’s strongest partner in the US as the Taiwanese motherboard guys were never that serious about graphics.  

Europe is still ok with a lot of different partners who do well in some of the countries so everything is pretty much pointing at the fact that Nvidia's competing on an already quite saturated market sounds like a very bad idea.

Totally agree should replace shocked with okay whatever. We've all read this already only new thing about this is they will not retail their cards in EU market, probably testing the US market out first to see if they even profit from it.

Who cares now about Nvidia? Everyone is concerned about Amd and their 6xxx series.

Then go and get an overclocked pair of 480 to use for GPGPU, gaming and as a hair dryer.

And how do you know that the upcoming generation will have the same issues with af?

Over 50% of desktop GPU market is currently owned by Nvidia so I would say plenty of people care. This stupid move however was pressured to be made by shareholders who wanted profit since Fermi based cards were too late and Nvidia has issues with selling more cards

I think it wont last long, when next gen cards are ready they will quietly stop this

No way pc gaming market wont disappear that fast. It may take 2 or 3 decades before that happens. Also (if you didn't notice) consoles have graphics from AMD & Nvidia so we would still need them.

At 720p or less, 30fps or less, 128x128 textures or less, yeah, well, have fun with it along with the rest of the crap.
